move forward? this raises the bar for romney and for obama. so i think our next debate is going to be a little more livelier, jon. jon: cory, even big obama supporters like bill maher, bill maher tweeted out during the debate that it looks like president obama doesn't even realize he is showing up here for a job interview. >> well, jon, there is no question about it that mitt romney did a good job of exceeding dramatically low expectations. definitely won the expectations game, right. jon: if he won the debate? that is more than exceeding low expectations, isn't it? >> i think so. >> but here's the point, the point is at end of the day debates about specifics. this was very substantive debate last night. even the president at the end thought it was a very good conversation but i think his strongest point throughout the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for
. that is a challenge. but to stand next to obama for the first time on eke with footing can help him. in battleground state he is is down everywhere. >> bret: see you out here. we're giving the grapevine the night off to bring you more news. first, why members of the military may sit out the election or be forced to. then we put you on the battlefield. in afghanistan. >> we are leaning romney. we think people want to vote for romney and they're not encouraged by what the current president has done. romney needs to make the case strongly and articulately to get people really fired up a behind him. >> in arapahoe county specifically? >> all around colorado. >> economy, economy, economy. >> bret: that's your baby, i know. your dad says the economy is important. what were you saying? >> i would say i would have rather them pick somebody besides romney. however, when it comes down to election day, i'm looking for somebody other than obama. >> you are? that is what is driving you? >> yes. yeah. other than obama, i'm railly, i'm not appreciating the performance. [old english accent] safe driver, multi-car,
for the next four years they will be looking at this person. they know what obama is like. they know many people support him. at this point in time they don't know enough about romney and the specifics on his vision. he needs to lay some of that out. bill: in terms of specifics, maybe you hang one fact out there. i'm going to take the unemployment rate and do this with it. >> you have to be factual on those things. he laid out a tax plan without any details, what does that mean? bill: do you find most guys cheer their guy and boot other one? >> usually debates reinforce the side you are on. you look for the good points. center few people are totally neutral going in and it's not entertaining, it's educational. bill: that contradicts the point about saying maybe in the case of governor romney. there is a sliver of people saying i don't know enough about this guy. if he convinces me, he might get my vote. >> i think that's important. if the election were held by the polls he's a few points behind. he needs the debates to change the dynamics where people say this is a down to the wire race.
standing next to each other and crystallize the choices they have. jamie: president obama and governor romney will be on the same stage before an expected audience of 50 million americans. that's pretty big. bill: rubio knows all about this communications stuff. you saw him in tampa, a terrific speech that knew how to reach people. he's been out on the trail the last couple days with governor romney. breaking developments out of syria. a deadly blast ripped through the country's second largest city yet again. 30 more people are dead. leland vittert is in our northeast bureau. how sophisticated were these bombs? >> reporter: very sophisticated. these were coordinated attacks. the bombs went off within minutes of each other. the bombers were able to get into a secured area in aleppo near a military compound. the results are incredibly devastating. the bombs themselves were very large, killed dozen of people, then also injured hundreds more. the scenes we are seeing off syrian state tv look like some of the same images you saw from the rebel video. what has happened inside this military c
obama will win the three presidential debates in the next three and a half, four weeks and that governor romney will lose them or at least a third of them asked believe that. romney has the opportunity to overachieve. it's sort of what campaigns want. it seems counter intuitive though you would want voters to have low expectations for you it gives mr. romney an opportunity to not only lay out his case but to pick apart president obama's. the theme will be as we have heard over and over and over again in recent weeks the country can't afford four more years like the last four years. romney wants to do it in a way that shows he is capable, able, has solutions, dodges. so barbs by the president regarding his alleged specificity. people find it difficult to access mr. romney. this will give an opportunity to show people who he really is shep? >> shepard: carl, a new ad out tonight. i wonder if that gives us a hint of what we might hear in this debate. >> it does. mr. romney has been complaining in the recent weeks that the president often misrepresents his position on abortion, the auto bail

then senator obama of being unqualified to answer the red phone in the middle of the night. our next guest who voted for obama in 2008 says the ad rings true today. joining me now, fox news contributor and columnist for the "new york post," michael goodwin. why does it ring true today? >> we had both of them running, president obama now and then senator and hillary clinton then a senator. they were going to be the dream team when they finally came into the government together after obama won. we had them both in the government. mean while, the phone is still ringing, nobody answered. the libya incident i think is not fully appreciated for the major screw up that it represents that we had this lack of security on september 11, one of our ambassadors killed in a consulate and the fact that the white house then begins to, as i say in the column, weave this web of deceit about what actually happened. right down to sort of creating the idea that there was a demonstration that was hijacked. there was no demonstration. it was a full on assault. al-qaeda groups claim responsibility almost immediately

, and i think that the obama team is going to kind of double down on that over the next few weeks. >> let's talk about a piece on cnn.com. you gave president obama some tips on how to win the first debate. >> right. >> writing in part, this is a great little read. you wrote my final piece of advice is most simple. stay nice. no, you're likable enough comments. no jokes about dogs on top of the car, >> reporter: marking about how rich romney is, no patronizing lecturing when he has his facts wrong. just stay nice. but looking back, i mean, you say he didn't do so badly but by all accounts the president remained calm, maybe too calm for some of his supporters, didn't engage in the attacks, didn't use the bain capital, didn't use the 47% attacks, and -- and the overwhelming consensus, of course, was that romney won. what's your advice for him for the next debate? do you still say stay nice, stay calm in the. >> the first two pieces in that column may not be at pithy and important in my view, number one, this election is a choice. it's not a referendum on the president. it's a choice. which p

won the debate, and about 3800 for mitt romney, 2200 for president obama. don is on our democrats' line. >> i was disappointed in the president's performance last night. i watched it on c-span. 's plan goes into effect next year, it is not going to affect me, because i'm 65. but i'm worried about the seniors and the seniors to come. somebody needs to ask romney when he talks about, when he has a plan for the children of 26 to be on their parents' insurance, he has a plan, and he wants to send that to the private market. how much is that going to cost? that is the question. i was totally disappointed in the president's performance last night. >> let's go to the republicans' line. this is paul. >> it would be nice in the next debate if they had eight fact -- a factcheck.com screen, or if somebody said something, factcheck.com either validated that were debunked it. >> if you watched c-span2 last night, we were running some tweets, and i bet there are some sites doing that, but we had some real time tweets. >> i went back and forth between four stations -- >> [laughter] >> and i went
barack obama and nancy pelosi to not know how to stop spending money. >> the next question is for bill enyart. >> there is also a question of what actually constitutes the middle-class. how would you define the middle class, based on a yearly household income, and what makes you the best qualified candidate in this race to represent their interests, as follow the rest of the economic spectrum? >> i think probably the best place to start with middle- income would be in the middle, about $50,000 a year. then you can adjust it either side of that. i think that is probably a pretty good starting point. you can get into statistical analysis, but let us just say that 50 is the mid range. i think i would be the best person to represent this district because i started out life like most people in this district, i am from a working- class family. my dad worked in a factory. my mom was a clerk in what was then called a dime store. i am listed in the air force at 19. i got to go to college because of the gi bill and student loans. that is how i got through law school. i think my experience in wor

tonight during the first face-off between president obama and mitt romney. voters will be looking to the candidates for less spin and for more of what my next guest calls, quote, blunt new england style honesty. paul wescott joins us now from new hampshire, host of the paul wescott show on wgin. hi, paul. >> good morning. >> do you think the candidates will deliver? >> we all hope so. honestly, it really is about having an honest conversation and making sure that they actually get down to brass tax as opposed to the thousands upon thousands of ads we've been showered with here in the state over the past year. that's really, at the end of the day, what people are looking for, real solutions, ideas and how do we get that back to the state of the country. >> you don't want to hear zingers? >> it's fun for me, i'm a radio talk show host but for voters they're looking for mitt romney to be tough, for the president to be tough. i think at the end of the day they want solutions. >> recent poll shows president obama up a stun ing stunning 15. is that what you're seeing and hearing on the
years have been run by, the obama-biden ticket. that is why the vice president clarified at his next campaign stop he was in saying, meant to say that the middle class was buried the previous eight years by the bush-cheney economic policies. he believes that the romney-ryan ticket would double down on the policies, a point the president wants to make tonight but a point the vice president maybe didn't make so clearly yesterday. jenna: we all have our time lines out about when that took place, i guess, i'd. a rot lot of romney surrogates talked about the president in recent days. you sat down with one of them. regardless prepared anything biden tries to correct to use his own words. how so? >> i sat down with marco rubio, florida senator, one of the most prominent hispanic politicians in america. that is significant in nevada because hispanic population could be pivotal. the hispanic population very important here in colorado, another important state that both sides desperately want. i think what senator rubio was trying to say in this sit down he thinks the message from mitt romney t
that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it o
're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
